I remember when they said they never again want to mess with AV. Not only since then, did they remove things that actually made it more balanced, now they also adjusted the reinforcements. Awesome. Even quicker and lamer games now, putting the alliance in an ever bigger advantage, since they can cap/reach things quicker.

I seriously dont care anymore, since I have finally completely deleted that POS game for good after 5.0, but its still interesting to see them break even more each day and seeing this game getting reduced to a scrawny skeleton of its former glory.
